We loved it . It was clean ,well kept . It's a beautiful area all around . Great hiking/biking trails . Great views. Near an air base, but it was not bothersome at all. If your an navy or aviation buff, you'll be in heaven. We watched the sun set over Chessapeake bay every night. Great hiking/biking trails throughout the...

Our family has been coming to First Landing for 30 some years. We used to tent camp with our 3 boys and now we have a travel trailer. This park is a true gem. It has some of the most pristine shore line on the east coast giving you a look at what the land was like before all the...

Take your camera, enjoy the views and talk to the park rangers. It's incredible to stand where the FIRST landing was. You always here about Plymouth but this was so informative. Everywhere you look is humbling. Looking out at the Chesapeake Bay. Seeing the Bridge and where the Tunnel starts. It wasn't a lot of water traffic because of the...

This was our second trip staying here. We previously stayed 2 nights when Dave Matthews band was in town. There is so much to do here. You can hike, ride your bikes, find a launch and kayak or walk a few feet to a beach on the campground that over looks the bay. If you want to spend a night...

First Landing State park has so much to offer! Beautiful beaches, incredible bike trails through forests that may look like they did in the 1600s. Wildlife, nature, history, beaches and fun all converge at First Landing State Park. You can see where Virginia began to take shape. An old lighthouse is open for you to navigate the steep steps and...

Yes, that's all I can say, it's getting better than my last review of First Landing State Park. When walking on the beach after sunset, it is very difficult to find the boardwalks leading back to the park. These boardwalks should be marked with lights to mark them. My wife and I got lost last visit and on this visit...

We recommend that park visitors walking after dark bring flashlights. Even with some lights on the end of the boardwalk, it really isn't enough to navigate comfortably. We try to avoid excess lighting so our visitors can enjoy the natural world.

Made reservations six months in advance and was really looking forward to camping here. We arrived after the office closed to find our name on the wall assigned to Pink area. We drove around looking for a pink spot and immediately noticed the small roads. My husband was afraid we were going to get in an area and not going...

VaStateParks, Guest Relations Manager at First Landing State Park, responded to this review

I am sorry that your experience at First Landing was not to your liking. It is important to select the right size site so that you have plenty of room. A pink site was probably not the right size for your camping equipment. If you like private campgrounds, you will likely be disappointed by First Landing any way. The campground...

We first visited this State Park several years and when we returned we found it basically the same - LOVELY. Our campsite in D Loop was secluded and allowed us to hear the surf at night. On Friday night there was military helicopters running maneuvers which served as entertainment while at the campfire. The bathrooms are dated, but always clean....

“Pay for a site with water/electric if you want to be close to the beach; or choose a basic tent-only site for shade and privacy.”

“Making a reservation does NOT guarantee a specific site. When you arrive you have to pick the first empty one allotted to what you reserved (ex. electric and water)..some sites are more private where some are in the complete open. Its a little awkward then if you are tent camping.”
